Heroism in Popular,
Visual and Digital Cultures,
and Creative Production
Heroism remains a persistent phenomenon in both lived experience and the media in contemporary Western and non-Western societies. This special edition of IM: Interactive Media explores the diverse, complex and, at times, problematic representations of heroism in popular, visual and digital cultures, and creative production.
Through select contributions from the inaugural cross-disciplinary conference The Rise and Future of Heroism Science held at Murdoch University, 11-12 July 2016, it aims to showcase the communicative power of various creative mediums in conveying the heroic in its many forms.
